> DESCRIPTION
Home is something I carry with me is an alternative art exhibition and film screening featuring over forty local Bay Area artists whose work considers the elusive and high contested notion of home. For one weekend, two homes in San Francisco's Mission District will transform into exhibition spaces and the backyard of a third home will be used for an outdoor film screening. (See schedule below). By reinventing our homes as art venues and opening them to the public, Home is something I carry with me exercises the rights of renters to use private residences for what we deem public good; an action that should be considered in resistance to the current housing crisis and the lack of economic sustainability for artists. Individual rooms within the homes will act as galleries organizing the work around themes of shelter, migrations, domestic space and memory, mapping, borders, neighborhoods and identities.
